How to turn off threaded view in Thunderbird

When you are working on several issues at once and you email people back and forth regarding those issues, then enabling threading on your Thunderbird is very useful. Threading keeps your emails grouped together and makes it as a single conversation. If you ever used Google’s Gmail service, you’ll be very familiar with threading, since a message and your replies appear together as a conversation. In this tutorial we will see how to turn on/off threaded view in Thunderbird.

1. Turn ON Threads view in Thunderbird:

If you want to have your messages at your inbox threaded together, here’s how to turn on threading:

  1. Open Thunderbird
  2. Click on the folder you want to thread (ex: Inbox)
  3. Go to View > Sort By > Threaded
Thunderbird Thread view Turn ON
Thunderbird Thread view Turn ON

Each folder can have separate threading preferences. So you need to enable threaded view for all those folders you need it.

2. Turn Off Threading in Thunderbird

If, by some chance, you have turned on threading, and now you want it to turned off, follow the below procedure :

  1. Open Thunderbird
  2. Click on the folder that is threaded
  3. Go to View > Sort By > Unthreaded
Thunderbird Thread view Turn OFF
Thunderbird Thread view Turn OFF

Viola, threading is turned off for that folder.
